I'm a parent of a 7th grader and I'm very pleased with this school. All of her teachers seem to go the extra mile to let me know when things are going great and also the rare time when my child needs extra assistance. I've been happy with all the friends she has made. On a side note, I think some diversity is never a bad thing when it comes to shaping a child's environment.

Churchville is a great school . My son started in 7th grade, came from other school dist is showing a lot of improvement. Teachers are so encouraging that my son is always exited to go to school and when he comes home every time with better and better grades, an appriciation letter and good comliments from teachers, it brings tears of happiness to my eyes. I love great teachers of this school . And it is very positive point that you always stay informed about your child, how he is doing in the class.

Churchville was one of the best experiences of my student life. Great teachers who are willing to help you propel you forward into the future. Although there will be quite a bad reputation from those further into the heard of Elmhurst, they proved to be less of a respectable student because of the 'i'm the ruling tween mentality'. I've noticed in high school, York, I took summer classes and it was our students that seemed to know more of the answers. Opinions aside, I really loved Churchville.

I am a parent and a former student. Churchville is a outstanding school in my opinon. Churchville had done nothing but help my son. His experience moving to the 6th grade went so well. The teacher are great also. Very concerned that every child understands the ciriculum well! I am very pleased with this school. I was a little hesitant and first. Only due to not knowing what teacher were there. Come to find out most of the teacher were still there 15 years later. I felt so comfortable send my child there!

We have been extremely pleased with Churchville. It is one of the best kept secrets in Elmhurst. The faculty is fabulous and the families are very down to earth.

What an incredible staff of caring and dedicated teachers. They really understand the children and put endless hours into planning interesting projects for them. My daughter has just thrived under the guidance and dedication of some of these fantastic people. The leadership of our new Principal is also fantastic. I do wish there was much more parental involvement. Just because your child is middle school age, doesn't mean the teachers do not need support and help.

Churchville is a public school. It is not a god enchanced school.There are people there of every race and every religion it seems. So dont judge it over what someone says. Most likely it was a child just posting non sense. But yes Churchville is a great school. The teacher actually care about the students grades.School matters here.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
